terrorist. here's something president obama was clear about -- this was an act of terrorism. he says any time bombs are peaking used to target american civilians, that qualifies as an act of terrorism. he said that it's an important time to remember that as americans, everyone has an obligation to do what we hear the department of homeland security say so often, if you see something, say something. speak up. that's what we heard the fbi saying today. they want all witnesses, people who were in the area of the bombings yesterday who took pictures who had video to turn that over because they are trying to construct a time line so they can start to get answers to some of those questions everyone is asking. pam and dave? >> all right. emily schmidt. thank you. >>> certainly, keeping in mind, as she just mentioned, be vigilant. police are asking everyone to be vigilant. security certainly increased across the country, following. boston bombings. and brian flores is now at the embarcadero in san francisco to talk about how the attacks are leading to an increased police presence here in the bay

someone who is willing now, for example, to talk to the americans the way the "new york times" reported on monday that he had sent a message through bill richardson who was in caracas to president obama saying let's talk. is that true? we'll see. my sense is that he's not -- and i agree with you a little bit, i think, nicholas -- he's not up to the job if he really only got half the vote. that is not something that is going to make for a lasting presence in the presidency. >> charlie: for the most part he would carry on the policies of hugo chavez. >> i think he would except that a lot of economic reforms have to be undertaken very quickly because the economy can't continue the way it is among other things giving gasoline away. they can't go on that way. >> nick raised the question of ideology. it's important to note that the opposition it wasn't an election about ideology. the opposition, what was fascinating about it is it ran on a comain to administer it more efficiently. they accepted the social missions. they accepted even the foreign policy. dressed in red. he was in some ways pra

will repeat the mistakes of iraq and squander the enormous sacrifice of american lives. in iraq, the obama administration's decision to withdraw u.s. troops in 2011 has resulted in the research of al qaeda, increasing the violence and growing caribbean influence. the picture of iraq looks increasingly violent. in afghanistan, president obama is making the same mistakes based on arbitrary time lines and without a finding the underlining the objectives strategy and mission. in my office last week, we discussed the need to have capability to support the afghan security forces and .ounter-terrorism efforts about ourg decisions mission, the president should listen more to the professional military commanders on the front lines and less to the political advisers in the west wing. this committee was told he recommends possibly 20,000 troops remain in afghanistan after 2014. that would be about 13,600 u.s. troops, about half that many international forces. our commander tells us the mission should be to continue counter-terrorism efforts and train and it finds afghan security forces. missions acro

that it's a big defeat for president obama. he's something he wanted to happen but i think he never had it on the agenda until newtown occurred. once newtown happened there was a shift in the polls, the american public opinion. people said we need to do something that you can have the small children slaughtered in idyllic community like newtown, connecticut. right now, and i think the emphasis is can the senate work with anybody? i mean the silent filibuster -- you had a clear majority of the senators, 55, who supported this legislation. congressman harman pointed out this was no some promize legislation. this was a hard line. so should they have never focused on assault weapon or high capacity magazine? did it waste time? should the president acted more quickly in the aftermath of newtown to get it done? those are tactical measures. but the thing is, as harry reid, the majority leader in the senate said this week, when you have 90% of the american people, and 80% of republicans saying okay, background checks are a good idea. we like that. the senate still can't get it done, the emphasi

the republican budget plan. i mostly like to thank the administration for standing with american families. especially our older neighbors, our parents and grandparent because president obama keeps the promise of medicare unlike the republican plan. the republican plan, again, proposes to turn medicare to a voucher. it doesn't decrease cost over time. it simply shifts the cost to our older neighborhoods and parent and grandparent. it's not consistent with american values. at the time when, as you noted, we have a new demographic prices with the retirement of a baby boom population. you keep the promise and you achieve savings in medicare through important reforms. so thank you for that. the other stark contrast is in long-term care for our older neighbors. i mean, it is it has not got an lot of attention. because people know and understand medicare a lot more. but the horrible cuts that the republican budget makes to the ability of our parents and grandparents to live their retirement year in dignity is scandalous, in my view. med -- medicaid allows people to stay in their homes and not en

of his right to remain silent and be afforded legal counsel. president obama used his weekly address today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word from the hospital or are they staying somewhat silent on that? >> reporter: absolutely silent, alex. they're basically saying ask the fbi, ask the police about that, and they are saying nothing as well. it's a very tight lid on top of any information about him so far today. that could change perhaps, but you have to understand and, of course, you do, that this is a very, very delicate and sensitive situation an

is the obama administration has said the criminal justice system can make this work, the criminal can handle national security risks like this person, terrorists have been prosecuted, moussaoui. this administration is committed to using the american courts there are some critics, like senator mccain, like senator graham, who say that's too big a risk, that we have too many protection, we have too many abilities on the part of these defendants not to answer questions that put all of us at risk but i don't think there's any chance the obama administration is going to change its mind and use something other than the criminal justice system for this case. >> because a lot of people are raising questions, they had apparently some explosive devices, some weapons, rifles, hand grenades, stuff that's pretty expensive. where did they get this material? where did the money come from that helped them purchase this material? that's why some of these republican senators, lawmakers, are asking for this enemy combatant status. we will continue this conversation. i know it's going to be a subject of a big d

. why do we have to spend on that? president obama was offered to red line, love women and transportation and love new uniforms but i would rather have air traffic controllers on the job and the senate blocked those reforms. >> this is again, we americans love my country around love my people. we are knee-jerk reaction after the fact society on almost everything. this was preventable. the president said that, the american people said that and president said that. quite frankly to urge anybody to complain after the fact, we had the power long before knowing what would come down with sequestration as to who we would cast our voted for. we had the power then to pick up our phones to text and contacted our representative, of course we do now. this is after the fact. this is -- it amuses me we talk about this cut but nobody was complaining about my friend and husband having to go on furlough and get go go less pay while work is piling up. this affects not only the american people. this directly affects the flying directly affects politicians on the right and left. >> megyn:

and to the white house, president obama, another deadly poison arriving by mail on capitol hill. what do you, as a member of the homeland security committee, what do you say to the american people right now? >> look, i think we can't afford to go back to the pre 9/11 mentality. we have to be vigilant. the threat is still very real. if anything the boston bomb incident teaches us is that there is still a great threat to this country that i get briefed on every day. and we can't afford to go back to the pre 9/11 mentality. i think americans are safe by and large, they still try to target the larger cities, new york, washington, chicago, l.a., possibly houston, but, you know, look, in these ricin incidents, they are very reminiscent of the anthrax attacks after 9/11. i will tell you ricin is a little more lethal, more assassin like. it's not designed to cause mass casualties, which some would speculate does not tie to a quote unquote terrorist, because it doesn't cause mass casualties, which is what their playbook always calls for. but there is great concern here on capitol hill for the safety

americans? how do you balance how much you allow them today, how much you allow them to clam up, how do you balance that? >> i think the obama administration has done a great job so far in this case in striking that balance. i think they were right to invoke the public safety exception to miranda, which says, hey, if you've got a guy who is a dangerous terrorist, where there may still be attacks that are imminent, where he may have co-conspirators, there may be another bomb out there, you don't have to immediately read the miranda warnings. you can do what any sensible person would do and any sensible police officer would do, first, talk to the guy and make sure there is no other imminent threat. and then i think after they did that initial questioning, they also did the right thing to move him to the civilian criminal justice system. you know, senator graham and others have suggested, oh, no, they should have held him as an enemy combatant, should have held him under the laws of war, i think the experience in the jose padilla case and other cases shows that trying one of these new categori

has actually been on for the last two years -- now remember immediately after president obama became president, the united states took on a stimulus program, an enormous stimulus program of a little over $700 billion and that actually created the start of the rebirth of the american economy, but only lasted for a year, year and half and we undertook at the behest at the request of my republican colleagues an austerity budget over the decades beginning in 2011. we will see nearly $2 trillion reduction in federal expenditures in the 10-year period. that is what austerity is all about. and today, if you were trying to get on an airplane somewhere in the united states, you were beginning to see yet one more effect of austerity. and that is the air traffic controllers going on furlough so that one day out of 10, air traffic controllers will not be working, meaning there will be a shortage. some say they should have moved the money around and did it some other way, but that's not the way the austerity program is in the united states and not the way the sequestration law is written. sequest
